Misk

BandEDM

Misk’s sound offers a unique blend of dubstep, juke, trap, and all manner of sounds spanning the future bass universe. The tracks that result are funky, fresh, replete with sex appeal— and just a hint of swagga. Radio & Club DJ support from BBC's Mistajam, Modestep, HULK, Daedelus & Starkey.

Biography

Having spent his formative years between Kuwait, New Orleans, and the Bay Area, Misk settled down in San Diego to study electro-acoustic music composition at San Diego State University and launch his career producing and performing electronic music.

In 2010 Misk co-founded bass imprint Elk Beats with San Diego / Albaquerque based Dubstep producer EshOne and released his first EP, Nintendont, on Vermin Street which hit #1 on Addictech’s top 10 weekly chart and finished in March 2010’s top 10 for the month. His 2012 follow up EP on Vermin Street, First World Problems, charted among Beatport’s top 50 glitch hop albums.

Misk’s sound, which draws on a range of influences far beyond the diversity of his upbringing, offers a unique blend of dubstep, juke, trap, and all manner of sounds spanning the future bass universe.

The tracks that result are funky, fresh, replete with sex appeal— and just a hint of swagga. With support from a range of radio and club DJ’s such as MistaJam (BBC Radio 1Xtra), Modestep, HULK, Distal, Salva, and Starkey, it’s unlikely that Misk will remain one of southern California’s best kept secrets for much longer.
